Description of problem

I have created my first forum and am the only one with access at the moment as I am still designing it, yet last night I noticed that the "who is online" was showing myself (Admin) and some guests. These guests were listed as viewing the forum index. The number of guests fluctuated between two and seven for a while and they disappeared, and some appeared later too. I checked a couple of locations and one was in London and another somewhere in Germany.
What is going on?

Hello @Dollymixture,
Those guests usually are search engines bots/spiders/crawlers. It isn't something dangerous or suspicious.
